What an incredible shot of Cayman's Seven Mile Beach! I have been there several times, but I have never seen such an amazing picture of the beach. I therefore salute you with the photographer's barnstar. - User:DrTall



I currently live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and work at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), an agency of the Canadian government. Recently back from a year in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, which was a great time!

I've edited many of the nuclear articles to contain some of the interesting tidbits I've come across in my job (primairly to do with CANDU or the Canadian fuel cycle, and all public-domain information, and all of course my views and not the CNSCs), or to make them more correct and/or complete. Of course any views I may express are purely my own and don't necessarily reflect the Government of Canada or CNSC's opinions.

I've also added bits into articles on canoe and kayak (a hobby of mine), the Iron Ring Clock (a former hobby of mine), and several National/Provincial parks I've visited (Algonquin park, Kejimkujik National Park). I created the pages for the Rideau Canoe Club (needs pictures!!), The Tent Dwellers (great book), Khodynka airfield (stayed for 2 weeks not 10 minutes away and never knew it existed) and a few other small ones (Nuclear Power Demonstrator, Douglas Point, Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park).


My pics are I think my best contributions (the barnstar was a nice surprise! thanks Dr. Tall!). A good pic makes an article great and Wikipedia is so much better for pictures than a paper encyclopedia. Everyone put up your pics! Below are what I've put up, in order of contribution. The panoramas are worth a look at full size...
